Unit Five: Revolution and Nationalism

MONARCHS QUALITY OF RULE

Catherine the Great 1729-1796- Grade B+

Catherine had grown up and became known as the most intelligent and best informed person at court. Although Catherine II had a bad marriage experience, she chooses important people such as Russia's army officers to talk to and hang around.

Louis XIV 1638-1715- Grade C

He became the ruler of France. Somehow Louis was a king that had very strong likes and dislikes and in his own country he hated the cities and but loved traveling through France's countryside.However when it came down to the details of government he took care of it, but when he had to chose his country over himself, was better or at times top priority.
Philip II 1527-1598- Grade A+ PERFECT

Philip was the most powerful and hard working ruler in Europe. He was a man that worked very hard and had worked with what little he had. His office was small although, he insisted on asking for more paper work and documents to make stressful decisions.Philip II learned from his dad who was and emperor his self. His dad also insured him NOT to trust his own advisers when he was told that he trusted no one for a long time and had no help only wisdom from his father helped him in the long run.
Peter the Great 1672-1725- Grade F

Peter the Great had the mind of a genius, a body of a giant and a temper like a mad bear. He had a bad sense of humor and made unwanted jokes.The person whom crossed his path (in a bad way) or annoyed him got knocked unconscious. He had often got angry at others to where Peter had tortured them terribly. For example he had someones nostrils torn out with iron pincers. Frequently he thought of himself as the father to his people, he was cruel to his own family. To where his older son opposed him and later had him imprisoned.

Charles I 1600-1649- Grade

Charles Robert the first had time and time again asked for money. Part of this borrowing situation had to do with the fact he put himself and his country in war with Spain and France at the same time. As he begged, the Parliament refused to give him funds. Although, being the king he worked his way around the system. The Parliament offered him the refunds only if he signed a document that is today known as the Petition of Rights. In so doing the king would have agreed to these four points:

  1. Charles would not imprison subject without due causes.
  2. Charles would not levy taxes without Parliament's consent.
  3. Charles would not house soldiers in private homes.
  4. Charles would not impose martial law in peacetime.
    Charles signed and received the money but some time later he began to ignore the Petition or law. Even though he knew it was put in place to show that laws are higher than the king. Finally, King Charles imposed fees and fines among his English people. Such as an old fashion tax collector. SLOWLY BUT SURLY HIS POPULATION DECREASED YEAR BY YEAR.


Scientific Revolution: FROM MY PERSPECTIVE

<<NATIONALISM>>


1. Devotion to the interests or culture of one's nation.

2. The belief that nations will benefit from acting independently rather than collectively, emphasizing national rather than international goals.

3. Aspirations for national independence in a country under foreign domination.


~PROS~


  • Nationalism can cause security in the fact that knowing that you’re united in your country and that can make you feel better.
  • A positive thing is that it can combine a lot of different people to make our nation come together as one.
  • It can also make people feel like they belong to something.
  • And the sense of being a part of something bigger than you would make anyone feel better about them.

~Cons~


  • Nationalism can makes people begin to think they are better than everyone else and that could lead to wars.
  • Nationalism can also make people believe that no one in any other country can come close to the things we have and that would create more problems.
  • And lastly it can cause wars and discrimination towards members of different national groups.
